CLASS: The Science of the Paranormal: Parapsychology for Ghost Hunterse (2hr)
Instructor: Loyd Auerbach
Room: Riverside B 
Saturday, March 23, 2024, 6:00-7:00pm
Class Description:

The science of Parapsychology (also known as Psychical Research) has been studying cases and experiences of apparitions, hauntings, poltergeists since the 2nd half of the 1800s as part of the spectrum of psychic phenomena and experiences. Yet with rare exception, the paranormal reality shows and many ghost hunters have ignored the field, thinking it has nothing to do with "the paranormal." In this session, parapsychologist & paranormal investigator Loyd Auerbach will cover just what Parapsychology is, the major part of the field that considers evidence for Survival of Bodily Death, how ESP and PsychoKinesis (PK, mind over matter) relate to apparitions, hauntings, and poltergeists, and how and why parapsychological investigations of the paranormal differ from typical ghost investigations (especially what you see on TV). Auerbach will also provide suggestions about how and where to best connect with Parapsychology resources and information and make your investigations more fruitful.
